It's been almost a year [10 months, actually, but, close enough]
It is time for the greatest characters that you, the people of Prototype, can think of to once again do battle for glory, for honor and for the title of "Greatest Mega Man Character Ever [at least, for now]"
The 3rd edition of the PMMCT [Prototype Mega Man Character Tournament] will soon arrive! The planned start date is March 17, but, if changes must be made, I'll be sure to speak up.
What is the PMMCT? Well, once again, you, the people of Prototype, decide who you believe is the greatest Mega Man character of all time [at least for now]. It's simple. I post a division of 4 pairs of 2 MM characters, and you have 24 hours to vote on your more favored MM character in each pair; not who you think would win in a fight, but, who you like more overall. The characters could be from any galaxy in the Mega Man universe--Classic, World, X, Legends, Zero, Battle Network, ZX or Star Force. In fact, any MM character from any official MM game could take part.
The MM character with more votes advances to the next round. In the case of all ties, yours truly gives the tiebreaking vote. I always ban myself from voting, otherwise.
The 4 survivors from Round 1 do battle in Round 2. The 2 winners of Round 2 advance to the Division Final, and the winner there advances to the Grand Division, which, as usual, we save for last. Seeing as there's no seeding or byes EVER, it's always more and more interesting matchups as regular Divisions get cleared and it gets closer and closer to the final Grand Division, where the best of the best as chosen by you face off.
How do we choose what characters make it into the Tourney? That's ALSO decided on by you! You get to nominate which characters--up to 35--you'd like to see in the Tournament! However, ONLY the 64 characters [or more if there's enough for a 96-character or 128-character tourney] with the most nominations will make it into the tourney. Each person can nominate up to 35 OFFICIAL characters from the Mega Man universe. Any 35. You can have LESS than 35, if you want, but not more. Also, you can only nominate a character once.
Remember, all nominations must be OFFICIAL characters in the MM universe. By "official", I mean that a character HAS to have appeared in at least one Mega Man video game where Capcom was directly involved in it's creation. No exceptions.
Please don't make multiple posts. You have a 5,000-character limit, so, 1 post is all you need.
You can always edit your post with any additions, subtractions and changes, you might think of late on, but, please don't group your nominations [i.e., "the Stardroids", "the Mega Man Killers", etc.]. Name each of the characters you want to nominate by official North American names, please.
All nominations close on Wednesday, March 15, at 11:59 PM, Eastern Standard Time, at which point, your lists of nominations will be finalized. I'll then tally them up to see who has enough noms to make it into the tournament for sure, who earned just enough noms to make it to the Tourney Eliminator, and who didn't make it at all. The tournament will start on Friday, March 17, at midnight, Eastern Standard Time, with the Tourney Eliminator. Again, you can edit your post all you want to until then with additions, subtractions and changes, but, on Friday, March 17 at 11:59 PM, all lists are final.
Any questions you may have can be posted, here, as well, but, again, please, make only ONE post with an official list.
So, who will win, this time? Will we have a repeat champion? Will one of the top contenders from a previous tourney have a chance to shine, or will a complete unknown rise to the top?
You decide. Remember! Wednesday, March 15 at 11:59 PM, Eastern is when nominations close, and, barring extremely bad luck on my end, The 3rd PMMCT starts with the Tourney Eliminator on Friday, March 17!
[If you have any lingering questions about the PMMCT, itself, you can try finding me on the Prototype Chat and asking me there, or just post in this thread; I'll answer as bestest and as soon as I can.]

#'s 12 and 13 are grouped. There's also no specification as to whether you mean the Zero from the X series, the PLAYABLE Zero from the Zero series, or the OTHER Zero from MMZ3, whose name is Omega. Wouldn't be a problem if they weren't grouped. The first 2 I have to view as one and the same due to having the same name. Failure to specify who you mean by 3/15 means I have to accept this as a single "Zero [MMX]" entry. There's also The Clock Men at #35, which you already know is a thing, I suspect. :P
uraccountcrashed: Bond Man isn't a thing, friend. :P Walter: 36/35 entries. Also, Ryu isn't an MM character. Nice try. :P
as long as red text didn't appear besides your name, your list is currently OK.

Current problems [Only underlined, bolded ones are of any importance]:
MegaBossMan: Officially, 34/35 Entries.

Meta: Officially, 33/35 Entries.
Musical: Officially, 34/35 Entries.

Walter: The opening post says nothing about "Mighty No. 9" characters [and never will]. Officially, 33/35 entries.

All lists were screened at precisely 11:59 PM, ESt, and are now locked in and finalized. Sowwyyyy.
Noms are now CLOSED! I'll be making a new thread where the ACTUAL PMMCT 3 will take place later tonight. At or around 12:01 AM on 3/17, the Tourney Eliminator will begin, which will whittle the number of combatants down to the 96 we need [yes, confirmed, 96, not 64] for the Tourney.
Thanks for all the noms. See you soon. also, whooooooooo! 400 posts!
